Cold Fire by Dean Koontz

Title:  Cold Fire
Author:  Dean Koontz
Pages:  421
Genre:  Psychological Thriller
Publisher:  Berkley, 1991
Series:  Stand Alone

Synopsis:  Reporter Holly Thorne is intrigued by Jim Ironheart, who has saved 12 lives in the past three months. Holly wants to know what kind of power drives him, why terrifying visions of a churning windmill haunt his dreams, and just what he means when he whispers in his sleep that an enemy who will kill everyone is coming.

Review:  Well, this was one odd story.  I can't really say too much about what is going on with Jim Ironheart without giving a major plot twist away.

This book had me on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out what was going on.  And then, I found out....along with the main characters....and was a little let down.  The ending wasn't half as scary or half as good as the rest of the book.

Mr. Koontz writes great, scary stories.  He just seems to have trouble with the endings sometimes.  They either tie up to neatly or else don't tie up at all.  This one was one of the former.  I would have given it a better score if the ending wasn't also completely unbelievable.

Rating:  6.5 / 10
